I am a highly skilled teacher, writer, and editor specialising in Roman and Late Roman History. I hold a PhD in Ancient and Medieval history from the University of Birmingham. My PhD and M.Phil theses can be found here, and my PhD will be published under the titleĀ Marriage, Sex, and Death: The Family and the Fall of the Roman West in 2016 by Amsterdam University Press.

I write about Romans, gender, sex and occasionally other things. My first book, about Agrippina the Younger, is forthcoming in 2016. Other than that, I am a freelance academic writer and coach, available for hire. Email me at el.southon at gmail dot com for information, rates or anything else.
